#OOTD Get Nautical Because Rules Are Made To Be Broken

Hey Sweethearts,

It feels like ages since I did an outfit post when really it was only the other week. Still I have lots to show you that I bought a month or so ago and have been waiting for some sun to break it out. If you want to see a haul of the goodies keep an eye on my you tube where I will bring you a plus size clothing haul soon. Deal? Awesome,

I have always been a fan of the nautical look so I was stoked to see it coming back this spring/summer. In fact I am really impressed with the current trends not only have we got nautical but 90s goth too. It is rare I really get on board with a trend until it is dust. Simply Be had some super cute things in the sale that I had to snap up and create a cheeky look for you all, As I have been speaking about body positivity lately it is time for me to break some rules.

This polka dot shirt doesn't look that exciting on the website but it is really light and air for the summer and looks super cute tied up vintage style or tucked in to a cute skirt. I always avoid shirts because I am never sure about them but this beaut was in the sale and I needed it.

The denim skater skirt is really good quality and comes in about mid thigh on me with my big bum and I'm 5'6. I tend to find that skater skirts can come up a bit short but this one is lovely although I did have to send back the black acid wash skater skirt for being beyond too short. There is a zip and button fasten at the back but I think it is very true to size as it sits on your waist.

Boxy Shirt- Simply Be
Cardigan- New look (old)
Denim Skater skirt- Simply Be
Leggings- Primark
Wedges- Primark (Old)
Bag- Primark

The shirt has a nice length sleeve but I was tempted to roll them up for this style which could give the shirt a new look. Although if it does get chilly you could always team it with a pattern clashing stripe. I had these nautical wedges from Primark which I picked up for a bargain £2 last year and the little bag was also from Primark and was a steal at just a few quid.

Turning the shirt into a bit of a crop top was out of my comfort zone but I love how it looked with the skirt and I felt killer in it!

Are you rocking nautical? How have you pushed yourself out of your comfort zone?
